On the plains:

     If he had to meet an ambush, Shanks Pony decided, he was in good company.  The
three men with him were steady and experienced.  They knew what to do, and they did
it.  He looked around to locate the best cover from which to fight the ambushers.
That would probably be the--
     Shierah!  They had turned their horses and where charging straight at the
ambushers!  Madness.  But they were his comrades, and he could be mad, too, if that's
what was called for.  He turned his horse also, only half a stride behind the others,
although the hair stood straight up on the back of his neck at the thought of riding
into a storm of arrows.  The fact that he was now a Lord Protector and could be
resurrected was not at all comforting.
     The willows were close.  They must have been nearly within bow-range when they
started the charge, and they were surely within that range by now.  Where were the
arrows?  He hated waiting for unpleasant things to happen.
     There WERE arrows, a few.  Not the solid wall of them he expected, and they
missed.  They were aimed, he realized, at where he and his companions would have been
if they hadn't turned and charged.  Which made him feel a little better about it;
Redfox and Ghost Dancer and Barudai weren't madmen after all.  His hand went to his
bowcase, but he didn't draw it out.  No clear targets, and the willows might be thin,
but they'd deflect arrows well enough.
     His horse jumped over a fallen log, through a fringe of young willows, and
landed on a sandbank, lurched and slipped to regain its footing, and stumbled,
throwing him forward over its shoulder.  He rolled when he landed and came to his
feet, surprised to find his sword in his hand.  When had he drawn it?  How had he
managed not to cut himself when he fell?  No time to ponder those questions.
     A Rirorni, a skinny man with some gray in his hair and patches on his clothes,
came at him with a yell.  He was pathetic.  A two-year-old could have taken his sword
away from him.  It was an embarrassment to all Rirorni that this fellow was one of
them.  Shanks parried his first blow easily and twisted his own sword to disarm the
wretch.
     The man hardly seemed to notice, just kept coming, kept yelling.  His eyes were
fixed straight ahead, so wide open that white showed all around the irises, and there
was foam on his lips.  He threw himself at Shanks Pony, who was four inches taller
and probably fifty pounds heavier and thirty years younger, grappling and biting.  He
was insane.
     Could it be rabies?  Sometimes Rirorni caught that, if they were hungry enough
to fight coyotes for carrion, and Shierah knew this one looked that hungry.  Shanks
got a hand on the man's throat to hold him at a safe distance, then hit him on the
head with the hilt of his sword.  It went against the grain to kill an old, unarmed
man, but if he was rabid...people never recovered from that.  They just died.
     Shanks tied the man's hands and feet with a thong (Rirorni always carried
thongs, they were small and light-weight, and you never knew when you might need
them) and looked around for his companions.
     He couldn't see them, couldn't hear anything but the wind in the willows.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

It was very satisfying to revenge my earlier loss to Mr. Chomp Chomp, and with it,
I've decided to retire from regular arena play.  You may see me a couple of more
times rather sporadically, but I think my dueling days here are done.  But, if you
all let Freddy Fender take the throne, I promise I'll fight again.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM!  Know me for who I am, 
Zontani Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE 
PENTARCHY was unseated this week as DODGE BULLETS moved up from 2nd ranking to take 
the top spot with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at THE 
PENTARCHY's guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
6th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week OLD WANDERERS went 3-2-0 to move up 5 in the rankings. 
Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which THE ANIMALS managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  A new guild, OUTCASTS', 
entered SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM with a clash this turn, showing off a 5-0-1 record.  
Indeed, a worthy addition to the city guilds.  FLO VALVE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MANKILLER and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FLO VALVE put down 
MANKILLER, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, CAM SHAFT has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail LADY 
CONSOLACION, Duelmaster of SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM!  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM "art" is a 
word that has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  LORDS OF DEATH is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of OLD WANDERERS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after DIANA QUICK.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that FREDDY FENDER posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized LADY CONSOLACION.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
FREDDY FENDER lost to LADY CONSOLACION.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  ID 
TEN-T has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  My hearty 
congratulations SABLE, for thy revenge upon VINCENZO, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  
Next time he will know better, eh?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in SLAUGHTER PRIEST MEM as ever I remembered them....and 
the fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Blackstorm, Uncle Wolf -- Thanks for the information. -- The Zoo Keeper

Lady Consolacion -- Getting thumped and beaten is no small consolacion.  Hopefully
you take the throne and move on out of here soon. -- Anne Tenna

Mankiller -- Fortunately, I'm a mechanic. -- Hub Capp

Lady Elma -- I think I may have found a weapon I like. -- Flo Valve

I'm new in town, but I have a lot of spare time, so I hope to catch on quickly.  One
question, what's a Rirorni?  Mine's hungry 'cause I don't know what to feed it yet,
and I can find nothing in the handbook. -- Gillean "Light" Fingers, shaking off the
Shuttle dust

Argh, mauvais conseils, Orage Noir!  Maelle a iti rapide et a tapi fort!  I must get
a little bloodfeud before giving some rest to this exhausted team. -- Le Pentarque

Freddy Fender -- Well, shucks.  I thought you'd be a guitar.  I wouldn't have raked
my pick across you like that if I'd realized you were, um, whatever you are.  Some
kind of carriage part, I think?  I'm sure someone can fix the scratches in the paint.
-- Redwind

Hub Capp -- You recovered?  Drat.  That wasn't supposed to happen, not if I'm going
to live up to my name.  Of course, it makes Uncle Wolf happy, he says that killing
fellow gladiators brings nothing but trouble.  I don't see that myself, what *I*
think is it makes you stay AWAY from me and keeps you from killing ME. -- Mankiller

Ferret -- I expected you to be smaller, but you being an elf is just EXACTLY what I'd
expected of a sneaky little weasely beast. -- Haruspek

Marie Alice -- Ah.  Umm...what should I say?  It was not a good fight, you showed
poorly.  Perhaps it is the wrong style for you?  Or the wrong venue, perhaps. --
Stormdancer

Selema Campond -- You're a pond?  Funny, it doesn't show. -- Corlejo

Blackstorm -- I have queried the Commission office about the forms (no answer yet)
and will actually make the journey to Arizona to search for them (and for several
other reasons).  I'll have to pass on an episode this time, however, as I will be on
the road. -- the Scribe

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

3 May 2006
All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

The 2006 Mordanti Alliance Olympics are off to a grand start!  With seventeen teams
declared, running under eight different flags (not to mention six additional non-
Olympic teams present), it is looking to be as tough as any previous Olympiad, if not
more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
(alliance name or independent), or show up in Mordant (DM-1) on, or before, May 29th
and place your declarations in the newsletter!
